F1 » Stefan GP will be in Bahrain – with Villeneuve, Hurley


BBC pundit Eddie Jordan - the man who correctly forecast Michael Schumacher's F1 2010 comeback with Mercedes long before the deal was publicly confirmed - reckons it is a dead cert that Stefan GP will be on the starting grid for the curtain-raising Bahrain Grand Prix at Sakhir

Interesting because Eurosport has a story saying that the FIA won't allow any replacement teams for 2010.

Personally I think if Stefan were allowed in it makes a mockery of the application process that the other new teams had to go through (not that it doesn't look farcical anyway). But my point is surely you can't just lob up on raceday with a few shipping containers full of gear and expect a spot in the field when others have gone through the application process and been rejected.

I cant fathom as to why FIA didn't allow Stefan GP onto the grid for 2010? It seems that everybody except FIA understand that with 4 rookie teams entering the 2010 season, one of the teams was bound to collapse as has happened and FIA should have welcomed Stefan GP to save FIA the embarrassment if one of the new teams did collapse. So why in the world is the FIA denying a completely ready team with one driver signed and another getting a seat fitting, with full funding. I don't buy this BS about how its not possible to enter a replacement team at this 'late stage'. The FIA are such control freaks they would do anything they wanted.

Well I did say that this was Opinion written as fact.

As it is, Eddie knows nothing and Stefan weren't included on the entry list last night.

Yep, just look at this thread.

If anyone dared disagree with EJ or stated that he's just a mouthy little idiot prone to talking out of the wrong hole, then 'disagrees' all over the place.

It just shows many readers of Crash are about as well informed as the bearded wonder himself.....

@fellainishair

Well same could be said when he said Schumacher came back, I said he was on the money but got pelters from many saying he was talking cr*p, Schumacher would never be back etc.

I don't imagine your any more informed than he is unless you work daily within in the inner workings of F1 :rolleyes:

taz, all statements have a 50/50 chance of being right or wrong. if ej keeps making comments, there is a chance that he will eventually get it right. he got it right with schumi, he got it wrong with stefan. his next statement could go either way.

Yep Taz, I totally agree that I have no more insider information than EJ - the only difference is if I make a wild prediction based on supposition and hearsay, it isn't then plastered all over the motorsport media as if the Delphic Oracle had spoken.
